Two-column equation in LaTeX RevTex

If you are writing a scientific paper using  the RevTex 4 LaTeX class (Phys. Rev. Lett., Phys. Review B, etc ),  occasionally you may have the need to make an equation to span over two columns instead than only one.  Well, ... how to do this?

You can do that very easily using the environment widetext

\begin{widetext}
  your equation
\end{widetext}


This local modification of the layout from two-columns to one-column affect does not affect the preprint because this already uses the single column format.
